Search Engine Optimization Tools
Using Google’s webmaster tools, you can easily monitor your site’s ranking in the most popular search engine and determine ways to increase your rank. To do this your site needs to be issued a verification code. Xpressite includes this code so you can have access to the same data that SEO companies have including, diagnostics, statistics, and linking information. These valuable tools can provide information that can help you modify your website content, keywords, etc. to improve overall rank.
Page menus have been added to further improve your site’s navigation. The page menu shows up in the body of the page and repeats the links from the main menu to make navigation even easier for the user. The page menu has the added flexibility to add images above and below the links and to add additional text links.
Menu Categories (Navigator Link Category) - Several functions have been added to the Navigator Link Category configuration document that allows additional control and features for the page menu option.

- Search box – Option to include search box on page menu and allowing you to define the search to entire database or to Category only.
- Page Menu Background Settings – In prior release, the background setting for the page menu was the same for all categories. In the new release, you can define different backgrounds for each category.

After making changes to the main navigation menu, it can be updated with a single click, significantly speeding up the process when making changes to the Main Menu.

After logging on, xpresslinks now include additional links to secured articles that can be viewed only by members.
